Oprah Winfrey Immortalized in Bronze

January 30th, 2008 // 10 Comments

The artist, Daniel Edwards, who has created such pop-culture-influenced sculptures as a dead Paris Hilton in repose, Britney Spears giving birth on a bearskin run and a well-endowed bust of Hillary Clinton, has now created a likeness of talk show host Oprah.

This bronze statue, depicts a nude and decidedly curvy Oprah, looking like a cross between an ancient Egyptian sarcophagus and some kind of awards statuette. According to the Daily Mail, Edwards said the metallic creation is paying tribute to the mighty O, and recognizing her as what the newspaper’s site refers to as “the closest thing America has to a living deity.” It’s a bit of a stretch, in my opinion, although I could see her rocking those “O” earrings he put on her.

    the body shape and barely visible arms are extremely reminiscent of the venus of willendorf fertility sculpture.

    Obviously a nod to the Hottentot Venus, a bit insensitive IMHO

    People were referring to Angelina’s babe as the second coming lol Not to be take seriously of course but our celebrities our like the deities of modern day society.
